Biphasic Hydrogenation over PVP Stabilized Rh Nanoparticles in Hydroxyl Functionalized Ionic Liquids
Polyvinylpyrrolidone stabilized rhodium nanoparticles are highly sol. in hydroxyl-functionalized ionic liqs., providing an effective and highly stable catalytic system. In hydrogenation reactions, excellent results were obtained, and transmission electron microscopy, soly. detns., and leaching expts. were employed to quantify the advantages of this catalytic system.
